    Hi, Daniel. I just watched your video "A bit About Bits -- Bit Basics and Snaffles" and found it to be the best video I've seen on bits to date.

    Just wanted to leave a note thanking you for the lessons. It's refreshing to work with someone as knowledgeable and pleasant as you are! I have a blast while I'm there. I am sure that you'll be able to work me through my issues, I just hope poor Curly doesn't get frustrated with me!

    Thank you so much for the advice. Nothing like horse people. They just have a way of reaching out and offering a helping hand. I am going to use the D Ring snaffle for now in an attempt to soften his mouth and gain attention (per your advice). I have been looking at Billy Allen mouth pieces on bits and the Reinsman D L Reiner looks good. I like the way it gradually tapers down before the roller at the break in the snaffle. I have one here, but it abruptly drops of at the roller. I can pinch my finger if I flex it, so I know it could pinch his tongue. Again, many thanks for you taking the time to help me!

    I started my horse's groundwork yesterday, followed by a riding exercise. I have been using one of the conventional walking horse bits with all that leverage. I am now trying to get a more appropriate bit for him. I think I want something with much shorter shanks with places on the bit for working him in a snaffle in the round pen and short shanks on the trail. I like the Reinsman 3 piece mouthpiece with the spinner piece in the middle with limited bend. I lean more toward western type bits than English. But, I am keeping in mind that I am at a very early learning level in equine training so any advice is welcomed. What do you think. Hope you don't mind me asking. Thanx

    Just wanted to thank you for starting the thread on clicker training (Loose, joos have some splaining to do). I ordered the book mentioned in the original thread. This may be just what I am looking for. My horse, Red, is a chow hound so using the treats to reinforce queues will work perfectly. Will probably put me in the poor house buying treats, but if I can get us past our problems and ride again, it will well be worth it:).
